Such outfits suggested a will to subvert male verity, but Pejoski insisted he was drawn to Ancient Greece because of its "appreciation of masculinity." Besides, as he has often said, "If you don't know the past, you can't get to the future." Plus, he specializes in exaggeration and there was plenty of that here in the sportswear-on-steroids proportions. The colors of the collection were black, white, and terra cotta, like those on a Greek vase. The details were ingenious reinterpretations of classical emblems, like the baseball cap-cum-warrior's helmet, the visor decked with the wings of Hermes, and the platform Greek sandal. Picture a bike courier in ancient Athens and you're close to the look.
KTZ is a world unto itself, with an audience of acolytes who absorb Pejoski's clothes into their own self-creation. Pejoski was ahead of the curve on this one. The likes of Hood by Air are his children.
